JOYFUL AND VIBRANT PHOTOGRAPHY 

...but it isn’t always easy. Taking care of little ones often involves cleaning sticky hands, defusing temper tantrums, and keeping little mouths fed. 

But as a mom myself, I know the truth: The hardest part of being a mom is realizing how fleeting every stage is.

Before you know it, that newborn baby is smashing his first birthday cake, heading off to kindergarten, and growing up into his own person.

Every time I look back at my daughter’s baby photos, I feel my heart grow a little more. Photos are the closest thing we have to being able to relive a moment.

My goal is that when you look back on your images, you remember exactly how it felt to run your hands over your baby bump, snuggle your beautiful newborn blessing, or have your child’s little arms around your neck wrapping you in a hug.

book lover,
coffee enthusiast,
creative at heart

I am a family and newborn portrait photographer with a studio in Selma, TX serving the San Antonio, TX area. As a new mom, I discovered the joy of capturing family memories and preserving meaningful moments with my daughter. Now, it’s my honor and privilege to do the same for your family. My style is bright, colorful, and fun. 

I’m a mom to a four year old princess, and you can usually find me trying out a new coffee shop, reading a good book, or shopping at local boutiques. I love celebrating life's biggest blessings alongside my clients, from maternity, to newborns, to first birthdays and beyond. 


Hi friends, I'm Selene!

Can you tell?

I love color and golden light.

We adopted him at 3 yrs old and decided to keep his name.

I still call Brownsville home. Home is where your mom is, right?

My favorite to photograph?

There’s something so special about this stage of motherhood! The tender anticipation, the tiny kicks, a new chapter in your life and your relationship. I love spoiling my maternity mamas with a client wardrobe, family outfit coordination, location selection assistance, and the option to add on hair and makeup.

Babies grow up too fast! You’ll want to remember just how tiny and sweet your baby was in those first blissful days and weeks. Newborn sessions are shot in-studio about 7-15 days after baby is born with our beautiful props and backdrops. I also offer milestone sessions throughout baby’s first year so you can remember each special stage!

"Selene was wonderful and patient with our newborn Danielle, our pictures came out wonderful. We are very pleased with Amor Bello." - Daniel

"Absolutely adore my daughter's pictures from the photo background set up, to the process of easily selecting the pictures of my choice!! Selene really has an eye for detail and I will continue to have all my family pictures with her. So far, I've had four sessions with her and I have loved all of them!!!" - Brenda

"From the moment we planned the photo shoot of my princess, Selene worked with me endlessly. She brainstormed tons of ideas and locations! She made the photo shoot so fun. She brought tons of smiles and made my daughter feel so special."
